the government in catalonia is little. the implementation of that 155, the taking over temporarily is not straightforward. ,ejra: on the economic impact we have heard that there could be an economic impact on the spanish economy. when do you see that coming through? markets are not pricing that in yet. notnio: normal that it is priced in because they're waiting to see the resolution or not of the conflict. a defense for how many more weeks the situation will escalate. if it continues for weeks or months, no doubt it will have a negative impact with 90% of spain gdp, you can imagine -- 19% of spain gdp, if negative growth, spanish growth will see in the gdp numbers. growth nextiled in year for spain at 2.8%. if catalonia goes negative, you

said mohammed bin salman the market has already swallowed the supply of shale oil and now is part of supply. now we are going into a new era. that is the dynamic he sees. there is nothing saudi arabia can do to his stop u.s. shale production -- can do to stop u.s. shale production. the only alternative is to extend the production cuts that will expire in 2018 that opec agreed to with the russians. he believes that has to be extended. vladimir putin told us that he has given provisional support to an extension. we look to the opec meeting next month and conclude that it is a near certainty. if the producers hold to those limits, it is possible that oil will -- oil prices were hold where they are with brent trading at 58, a lot higher than where it was a few months ago in the 40's.

acceleration of growth in 2016. double the index. billionaires are usually successful with businesses. the other is the asian century, the acceleration of wealth, especially in the billionaire sector with asians is dramatic. for the first time, the number of asian billionaires has overtaken the number of u.s. billionaires. that is incredible. also, the impact in the andvation on job creation societies we worked on in terms of billionaires. or example, the billionaires we follow represent 27.7 million jobs in the world. that is the size of the working force in the u.k. they have a big impact on society. nejra: on the impact on society, what sectors are these billionaires in? mainly tech or elsewhere? >> great question. finance companies,
innovation, technologies. 70% of all the wealth today of billionaires is also for made. -- all self-made. you see the boom in technology companies and feeder companies that feet off the technology companies. services companies and technology companies are starting to blur and you are seeing a crossover. tom: a large part of society does not agree with you and feel billionaires are raving capitalism and getting the marginal gain from unfounded methods. describe what you learned billionaire to billionaire. not how they made the first million or first $22 million, but when they moved to a mega-wealth, are they doing it under what i would call constructively legal means? >> i think that is a great question. one of the nice things about
this report, not just quantitatively exercise of looking at numbers but a qualitative peace. we interviewed over 90 billionaires. or their advisors. it is deep and constant. it takes years for them to develop this wealth. this is not like you create an app in a garage overnight and have an instant $1 billion. most are in their 50's, 60's, 70's and build businesses over time. they employ 27.7 million people around the globe. i think the members present that wealth creation equals job creation and the evidence is there. we see in the report that there is a desire to give back to the communities of which they live and work in. to help society. we see it in the way they participate in the arts, the private museums, helping public museums, funding public museums and sports franchises. tom: what are billionaires like
now versus the millionaires of john rockefeller's time? you can pick your time, but if we go to tudor, there are always the rich. why are they different than 40 years ago or 400 years ago? >> we see that they are incredibly into networks. of have this acceleration bringing billionaires together from all walks of life and all industries. in the past, you think of a billionaires club which was a small group of people. today, we see a network for a lot of reasons, not only to figure out ways to do business together, they do deals with each other. they can go to their network for financing and literally use the network in terms of the vote, like they use banks today. you see they are very philanthropic.
younger, self-made billionaires have a different view on how to impact society and they want to make a difference. they like to see the difference they make in society. in fact oriented and philanthropic oriented, usually in the form of the network and they work together to find a better way and help develop a strategy and develop a focus. nejra: fascinating report from ubs, particularly the impact the billionaires are making on society. from your perspective as an economist, as you see more and more people getting richer and richer, is that trickle-down effect happening? will it happen? antonio: if you look at wealth distribution, there is still a long way to make it happen more evenly. as we were discussing before, the issue of the increase of populism, nationalism in part has to do with the result of a crisis. a little bit of a problem with
redistribution of wealth. leg for it to work is wealth distribution, there is more work to do with a better tax system and social security. those are key issues. if you want to address the polarization of politics. tom: john mathews, thank you so much, with ubs. after your briefing on "bloomberg surveillance" robert radio,-- bloomberg bloomberg daybreak: europe coast-to-coast and in canada, even in houston, home of the victorious houston astros. this is bloomberg. ♪

equity market boom. can you describe our equity market boom to a given president? >> i do not think so. if you go back to the recession 200 this stakes back to that and the bounceback subsequent to8 the recession and this one started in 2009, and if you will describe it to individual president it is obama and donald trump has taken it on over the last year. even if you look at the last two 20 a, we had a magnificent very strong16. .- a very strong 2016 tom: michael, and jpmorgan has a u.s. potential gdp well under 2%. is that america sclerosis? worrying about importing a eurosclerosis to the american financial system/ ? dr. kaufman: i do not think so.
i think we face bigger issues. the most important thing that has happened is, we would have 2009, and said by the current year, the unemployment rate will be down below 4.5%. now tell me what the inflation rate will be. we both would have said higher. even today, the chairwoman at the federal reserve cannot explain why that is. tom: we will continue this. here is a beautiful monograph of great importance, on the tectonic shifts. this is bloomberg. ♪
reporting that catalog elections may be held on december 20 and a separate report saying that the government asked the supreme court to suspend article 155. government may call elections instead of secession. tom: thank you so much. lots going on today, of course an ecb meeting and we will have a press conference across all of our bloomberg platforms. here is in new york your first word news. trump couldident officially declare the opioid epidemic of national emergency in a speech today, paving the way for a stronger federal response. tollndicates the death from opioid overdoses could be headed for another record year. appointes not plan to gary cohn to head the federal reserve. according to people familiar

our teleprompter this morning is run by a diehard dodgers fan and it began to shake as you showed the astros tearing the extra inning victory as well. haley, calm down. nejra: just to bring you some more news from spain and catalonia, we are hearing that the catalonia leader is to make a statement at 1:30 p.m. i am guessing that is local time , so in just an hours time or so . the government may call elections instead of secession, and that is the latest. government asking the supreme court to suspend article 155. ,ust in the past few minutes what we have heard from the e.u. side is they welcomed the sec call for relief for u.s. brokers.
the us is about the research issue, the fact that the mifid research to be unbundled from other costs. in the u.s. cannot charge for research separately unless they register as investment advisors and that brings more regulatory oversight . what the sec said is we will make it easier for you to comply with mifid ii. henry kaufman, gina martin adams are still with us. dr. kaufman, if i could come to you first. mifid ii really shaking up the .arket in europe everyone is anticipating this january 3 regulatory deadline and what it will mean for investment banks, but not just for the sell side but for the buy side as well. what does this mean in your world? dr. kaufman: i really think independence of research is a
very difficult situation to achieve. experience my own dating back many years, those who are the head of research have to really work very hard. the people working under them right objectively without interference. otherwise, if you do not protect the objective nest of research and it becomes known in the research.sell side that is not a thing to do for any firm, but it has been done and it is done when it comes to underwriting securities, the ability to transmit them to investors, but if you want research to do a job for you, you must protect the objectivity . if you cannot protect the objectivity the value of
research diminishes. nejra: part of the point of these roles is to have more transparency by unbundling those research costs. do you think the quality of research overall is going to improve with this? dr. kaufman: to the extent there is more unbundling, it should improve. at the same time, i think research in the security firms will diminish over time. we are already seeing many more transactions in the security firm stock market area that do not require research. a lot of automatic trading, the speed with which computers are used to facilitate values and someone, all of that i think on,nishes -- values and so all of that i think diminishes the research overtime. 27, coming up on october 1986 the october 27,
world seismically changed for london. -- frankly now people within johns hopkins one john lipsky's wisdom and they are going to pay for it. that is unchanging, isn't it? dr. kaufman: yes, but i think if you want to have objectivity in research, the individual who is in charge of research should be in the senior management of the ontitution, and sit there executive committee hearings of the top management. i had that opportunity -- tom: will that change on the sell side and with goldman sachs and lehman brothers of years ago? dr. kaufman: when i was at solomon i was in charge of research and i was one of six members of the executive committee. when issues came up that had to do with research, i was able to defend it. tom: we had a heated
conversation on this yesterday as well. are we having this discussion because we have not had a three to four standard deviation move where everyone picks up the phone and says get kaufman on the line? discussionng a mifid because it has been dampened and bottled? dr. kaufman: we have not had great volatility and the movement in price of securities. that diminishes the order, so to speak, to have correct and up-to-date and objective research. i have gone through periods where there has been volatility and if you do not protect the objectivity of research, business is lost. tom: nejra, jump in. gina, you live this at wells fargo. nejra: how this all translate and's -- translate into the trading debate, one of the discussions has been around small and mid-cap stocks, how coverage of those might be
affected if research departments get cut back and therefore how liquidity on those small and mid-cap stocks is affected. do you see anything like that translating to wall street? gina: there is a couple things to consider. we have not talked about the may fed -- mifid on the buy side which is under tremendous this transfer to passive investment and indexing away from active investing. they actively manage funds for those who pay for research and those active funds are under great pressure structurally. this ad a leg of pressure to that so yes, i think you will see a lot of distractions not only on the sell side and -- disruptions, not only on the sell side, but on the buy side. trendition to the secular which is pressuring the shops, it is tremendous. nejra: henry kaufman of henry
kaufman and company, gina martin adams of bloomberg intelligence both stay with us. for a deeper look at what the mifid regulations mean for banking, i am so glad gina brought up the buy side because i talked about that at length on my show. do try and catch it. a great discussion in this episode. this is bloomberg. ♪

if we did that today, would you know the military of japan? george: we do that today and it is now online. they still have some of the best . when you look at the japanese military, it is the kind of military you would expect from the third-largest economy in the world. it is substantial, capable, and effective. feldmantalked to robert about the economics of all of this and what is so important is the link of the common dialogue in your expertise on military, of the and military purely of defense or something different? george: i do not know what the difference, offense or defense. you use the weapons both ways. the japanese have a substantial military force. its navy is probably the best in the east asian area, not only because of the platforms but
because of the command structure. they have a tradition for naval warfare. chinese do not. they know fleet operations. when you look at the japanese, you have a military that is really capable and it can rapidly expand because they have the technologies in-house, they train with the americans. this is a world-class naval power and also airpower. the choice of how big it becomes and how effective it becomes is there's. for the chinese, there are so many hurdles to get over, ji just admitted in that speech, in 50 years we are going to be a world-class military power. this was a huge concession. he knows it, he admitted it. tom: let's bring in nejra cehic in london. nejra: george, you were talking about china. great to have you on the program. i am just wondering how is japan
, with itsuntering foreign policy as well, the growing military influence of china. george: we always talk about the south china sea. in the east china sea, the chinese have become more assertive than aggressive and the japanese navy faced them down. i have not been too many occasions in which the chinese did not back off. the japanese do not want to get involved in becoming a military -- militarily active power. they are happy having the united states carry the water for them. tom: are we happy for that? george: we are because we control the reach much better if the japanese are not a nuclear power. look at the two accidents at sea of our navy, are we and exhausted military? do you buy the idea that the sailors and officers on their
ships were simply exhausted by the budget constraints, leading to a lack of sleep? happen inthing will the u.s. military that does not need more budget. i think it is a training problem. think they relieved the commander because he was not paying attention to training. the people working 100 hours because they are expected to an nobody was thinking about what they are capable of, we have some operational problems in the navy as some corporations have, but that will be taking care of with madison as secretary of defense. tom: george friedman, thank you so much. we will do much more of this as a move into 2018. we will continue with george friedman. gina martin adams, thank you for equity perspective on the debt cross or golden cross. henry kaufman with us as well. let me show you how we bring this up.
